Drug problem is already a big issue without the legalization of marijuana in the United States. Marijuana might not be the most dangerous drug in the United States, but it has contributed to the drug situation in the country today. Now, let us be very clear – Marijuana is classified in some states as a medicinal herb, and it is prescribed just like off the shelf medication by approved authorities. CNN had a documentary where marijuana was used in the treatment of seizures. Marijuana can be deadly and addictive if taken for pleasure by both teen and adult. Legalization of Marijuana is bad for the country. Scarce resources such as financial and services would be diverted to rehabilitation of increasing number of drug addicts with legalization of marijuana.
